New York City FC drew Orlando City on Matchday 13 by the score of 1-1. Orlando took an early lead, but NYCFC regained their composure to even it in the 89th minute thanks to striker Gabriel Segal’s first MLS goal. Timing is everything.
Why don’t you go ahead and jump to the end and enjoy the good stuff, ignoring the struggle that comes before the goal. Did we mention today is Segal’s 23rd birthday? Not a bad way to celebrate the occasion.
NYCFC finally took a point on the road, which is good news. But that’s just one point out of a possible 12 on this four-game road trip, which isn’t so great. Is the glass 1/12 full, or 1/11 empty?
